What Size Blinds to Purchase
I have an 8' wide x 5' high picture window constructed with two 2' wide sliders on the ends and a 4' stationary window in the middle with drywall wrap around the entire window ensemble.
I want to use faux blinds but not sure which way I want to go as far as the sizes. Unless I get an expensive custom, I'll have to get at least 2 blinds.
1. Purchase 2 blinds and have to open up a 4' blind to allow a free flowing breeze.
2. Purchase 3 blinds (2', 4', 2') and only up the ends and keep the blaring south sun out but allow air flow.
3. Go custom
Option 1 I'm concerned it may look funny and point out that I was too cheap to purchase a custom 8' blind.
Option 2 MAY look more purposeful having blinds specific for the operable ends of the windows.
Option 3, could get very expensive for a room rarely used and the window itself may need replacing due to its poor quality. Even though custom, I'm concerned about the mechanism failing when the blind is adjusted up and down over the years. It's been awhile since I checked and most didn't guarantee the blind when it got that wide.
Background info...We need a window covering for privacy mostly. This room is mostly used for guests. Since the view to the outside is just the street view, I like the idea of blinds to diffuse the lack of view.
